I am losing the habit of speech
‘Testimony of the Untested’, a daily lockdown poetry series by Robert Alan Jamieson, who is in recovery from a corona-like virus. You can read his other works here.
I am losing the habit of speech.
Language itself grows strange.
I forget the names of all I knew.
Colour, shape and texture blend.
Those things there, what are they called?
Those people, what is it that they do?
How do those little words go
Sense to make situations of?
Soon, I will only meow
My tweets will all be bird-like.
